Razor Sharp New Styling
Sculpted to slice through the air and generate downforce for stability, the nose fairing wraps aggressively around the headlight.
New Full Colour 5-Inch TFT Screen
Backlit for readability with optical bonding to reduce glare, the new 5-inch screen is intuitive to use and features the smartphone connectivity of Honda Roadsync.
A2-Compliant Twin-Cylinder Engine
471cc of riotous fun for both new and existing riders, with assist slipper clutch as standard to enhance durability and overall performance.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
HSTC smoothly manages rear wheel traction, wet or dry, so riding the street – or attacking a set of turns – is always a thrill.
Class-Leading Suspension and Brakes
Enjoy sports bike-spec quality. Showa 41mm SFF-BP USD front forks and dual front discs boost feel, all-round handling and braking.
Honda RoadSync Smartphone Connectivity
Want to use your phone’s nav or listen to music? No Problem. By downloading the Honda RoadSync app, you can connect it to the CB500 Hornet.
Command the Ride
Handle the city. With a naturally upright riding position that puts you in charge. Lightweight 5-spoke wheels, sporty aluminum swingarm and footpegs shave mass for super-fast, effortless steering. Dual 296mm discs and Nissin two-piston radial-mount calipers offer strong, progressive braking. Dialled-in Showa 41mm Separate Function Fork-Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks mean you can push hard into corners with all the feedback for grip you need. And then some.
A cut, low-set stance locks in the imposing street fighting attitude of a bike built to rip it up. Wide handlebars give the leverage and control to dodge through gaps, scorch corners, and open the visibility you need to be fully aware of what’s going on around. It pays to be seen in another way: they’ll see you coming thanks to a piercing new headlight and, for sure-thing cornering at night, the beam penetrates the dark with a wide light distribution.
Make the Connection
This bike’s got your back. The 5-inch full-colour TFT display is all new, operated by a backlit switchgear with a very natural hand position allowing better visibility in all conditions. Both have been designed together for easy use, and the screen is engineered to minimise glare in bright sunlight. It also offers full connectivity through the Honda RoadSync app. A first in class, for Android and iOS smartphones, it means you can access on-screen turn-by-turn navigation, make and receive calls or listen to music while you ride.
